Service Description

The written word has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I am a voracious reader, print and online, and am now at a place in my life where I can devote more attention to my love of writing.

Being a high school English teacher has trained me to communicate effectively in virtually any prose form. I have been a writer all my life but I am fairly new to the paid writing world. I write creatively (prose and poetry) and have been blogging for over two years.

I specialize in creativity and the literary and musical arts, both as a consumer and a producer. Specific subjects of expertise, either through study or life experience, are:

- education
- literature (prose and poetry)
- film
- music
- psychology
- parenting
- pets
- paper crafting
- major social media services (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn)

I offer clear and capable content writing with strong organization, and can provide stylistic flair if the assignment is suited for it.
